Rod Hutchison joins Aberdein Considine
Rod Hutchison – a corporate law practitioner with over 20 years’ experience – has joined Aberdein Considine as a partner in the firm’s corporate and commercial team in Aberdeen.
He specialises in mergers & acquisitions, acting for investee companies on securing equity investment, corporate restructures, joint ventures, contracts and corporate governance.
Mr Hutchison’s appointment follows the firm’s recent hires of Robert Holland as head of employment law and Chris Richardson as head of commercial real estate for England and Wales.
Ritchie Whyte, head of corporate and commercial for Aberdein Considine, said: “Adding a lawyer of Rod’s quality is a real statement of intent for our corporate practice and will help us support growing demand for our services from clients across the North East of Scotland and beyond.
“Rod is a first class lawyer whose experience and expertise, particularly in the energy sector and around the transition to net zero, will be vital as we advise clients in navigating the challenges and opportunities which this will present.
“We intend to continue to expand our corporate practice and legal services in general and I am delighted to have Rod on board to join us on that journey.”
Mr Hutchison added: “Aberdein Considine has been a household name in Scotland and the North East for many years and it’s a privilege to join such a forward thinking and dynamic firm.
“I’m very much looking forward to working with Ritchie and team and supporting our clients when and where they need us.”
